Kirsty Carter is a former CEO in the not-for-profit sector. She and her partner, former journalist Lawrie Masterson, have been travelling Australia and the world house sitting since mid-2018.

They have done this for about the same cost as remaining in their own home in Melbourne, Australia. 

They have discovered many advantages to travelling as a house sitters  — no accommodation costs; staying in beautiful homes and meeting great people and adorable pets; the joys of unique local experiences such as Bastille Day celebrations in France and village life in England.

But don't just take our word for it. This is what our happy hosts have to say!

We would have no hesitation in recommending Kirsty and Lawrie as house sitters and hope to have them return to our home again in the future.

This is the longest time we have ever had anyone look after our boys and the furthest away we have ever been, but we definitely made the right decision in having Kirsty and Lawrie over.
